SXSWi 2007


It’s getting close to my favorite conference in my favorite place to be during my favorite time of the year, SXSW Interactive. Joanne and I will be in Austin from Friday-Tuesday.

Panel Name: Production Companies 2.0: Taking Online Video to the Next Level
Date: Saturday, March 10
Time: 5:00pm-6:00pm

With the advent of videoblogging, independent producers are exploring boundaries and using technology to create professional content in their living rooms. In this panel we’ll explore the ins and outs of forming a new media production company, the technology/content marriage, building online communities, the aesthetics of video on the web, the trials and tribulations of working with a limited staff and budget, and the challenge of ultimately becoming profitable.

Moderated by Zadi Diaz: Smashface

Doug Sarine: Ask A Ninja/ BeatBox Giant Productions
David Prager: Revision3
Ryanne Hodson: Ryanne Is Hungry/Podtech
Andrew Baron: Rocketboom/Abbey Corps.

This year Rocketboom is teaming up with 30boxes (which our company uses daily) and Satisfaction to host an official SXSW party on Saturday night, just post the Frog Design party. The theme is 8 Bit!
